New Working Documents Two new titles, in both English and French, have joined the growing list of CTA s Working Document series, which provides material of immediate relevance and practical utility to specific readerships, without the delays inherent in the formal publication process. The Desk Study on Land-use Management in Sub-Saharan Africa briefly describes activities and projects for soil conservation in western, eastern, central and southern Africa. About one hundred activities are included, ranging from zai planting techniques in Burkina Faso to vinyungu valley-bottom cultivation methods in Tanzania. Most of the descriptions are institutional more than technical, giving information on organisations involved. The interested reader will need to contact the listed projects for more details. As such, it is a collection of signposts to useful sources for planners and practitioners seeking comparative information on erosion control. The document was originally prepared as a resource paper on experiences with community-based land-use management in sub-Saharan Africa for a CTA seminar on Land Management held in November 1998 in Bamako, Mali. A more descriptive and narrative approach is taken by the Desk Study on Water Management in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, prepared for the CTA seminar on Managing Water Equitably, Efficiently and Sustainably for Agricultural and Rural Development in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, held in Cordoba, Spain, in September 1999. The working document discusses the strategies and tools involved in the areas of water policies, legislation and water rights. And it moves into a series of descriptions of water management approaches, with chapters on Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Senegal, the Lake Chad basin, Northeast Africa, East Africa, Madagascar, Zimbabwe, and South Africa and other neighbouring states.
